When you mix the Republicans red
states and the democrat blue states together, you get imperial purple. Our
President Bush has pushed us toward imperial purple and now all we need in the 2008 election is a little nudge more toward purple and we’ll have our first king, chosen by the people. And because of our wickedness, God will give us the wicked Antichrist to rule over us and he will rule over the world from the White House as emperor. And he will wear imperial purple that Christ wore as He was mocked just before the cross – “And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head and they put on him a purple robe, And said, Hail, King of the Jews…” – (Jn.19:2,3). We don’t want King Jesus to rule over U.S. in righteousness, so God will give us a wicked king to rule over U.S. in wickedness.
The colors of the Old Testament tabernacle and temple along with the colors of the high priest’s garments were blue and purple and scarlet. The blue speaks of the throne of God in heaven – “And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone…” – (Ezek.1:26) – King of heaven – amen. The purple and scarlet speaks of kings and religious rulers on earth like the high priest – (Ex.28) and “purple raiment that was on the Kings of Midian…” – (Jud.8:26). The Lord Jesus Christ is the King from heaven and he will rule over earth as King of Kings and High Priest forever and ever. In (Rev.17:4) we have the false New Testament high priest, the pope, arrayed in purple and scarlet colour but she’s a great whore and has no blue of heaven, she is not of God – she’s a harlot. And political Babylon in (Rev.18:16) is clothed in purple and scarlet but no blue – because Antichrist is not from heaven, but from hell. He’s not of God. But he deceives people into believing he’s Christ.
Soon the U.S. will show her true color of purple and will not deny that she is an empire, the last empire of Nebuchanezzar’s image dream, the feet of iron and clay. The red and blue has totally mixed into purple. And our Antichrist-Beast will have an outward, deceptive appearance of truth, but he will only ‘color’ the truth, he will be the lie. He will misrepresent and distort the truth very cleverly. People don’t want the truth – they have rejected Jesus Christ who is the truth, so God gives them the lie – Antichrist. “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming. Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they should be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they shall believe a lie: That they all might be damned, who believed not that truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” – (2 Thes.2:8-12).
The color purple, which describes our first king, is coming soon. And because the U.S. is the world’s superpower, he will be a king of kings, an emperor. Look for a president elected soon who will be the Antichrist. He will give U.S. the last nudge that moves U.S. over the line from a republic to an empire. We will have an imperial dictatorship and lose our right to freely vote as our presidential election will be postponed indefinitely or our constitution changed. We have become so proud and wicked that we want to rule the world like a devouring beast – (Dan.7) and (Rev.13). Already we are preying upon other nations with our military and devouring much flesh as we invade and conquer. We have lost our goodness and righteousness and have become evil.
Antichrist will come in as the great unifier. Americans are fed up with the politics of division. In 2008, the people will not want another 50-50 election of bitter red/blue division. So Antichrist will come in with the politics of unification and not division, a unifier not a divider. Instead of widening the chasm between the blue states and the red states, between liberals and conservatives, he will try to build a bridge across them. He will strive to unite people of different faiths and of no set faith. He will be the ecumenical leader of uniting all religions together worldwide. He will show himself to be a great peacemaker in politics and religion and business. He will transform what has become the disunited states back to the United States. He will pull off what seems to be impossible, he will unite America and the Mideast. He will be seen as a leader of America, not a leader of one party. He will unify the red and blue states into one color – the color purple and he will be Antichrist.
And he will probably be a black president and
probably half white and half black with a brown skin. He will be white enough
for whites and black enough for blacks and brown enough for Hispanics. Everybody
will see in him what they want to see. He will personify the melting pot of
The whole world will come under strong delusion to believe this lie. “Yes, they have chosen their ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions…” – (Is.66:3,4). This whole world will come under strong delusion and be deceived and go into an abnormal mental state having the psychotic delusion that Antichrist is God in human flesh. And because the whole world believes it, the abnormal becomes normal and the saints of the great tribulation will be the ones called crazy and abnormal. And the saints that refuse to commit idolatry and worship him will be killed, mostly by beheading – (Rev.20:4). But the born again saints of God will have the sound minds – “But God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” – (2 Tim.1:7). The only ones who do not come under strong delusion are the great tribulation saints, they have the mind of Christ, not the unsaved mind of Antichrist.
Antichrist has the greatest delusion of grandeur you can have – he believes he is God in human flesh – the Christ. And most of the world believe this same delusion of grandeur and worship him as God.
The Lord Jesus will reward his martyrs that
refuse to bow to the purple Beast, not with a purple heart but with eternal
life and a crown. Like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, they will not worship
the new Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon –
I believe the Antichrist is soon to come in America and therefore the rapture of the saints which occurs first, must be very soon. Are you saved from your sins and born again by the Holy spirit? If not, repent of your sins and believe in your heart by faith in the Lord Jesus and you will receive forgiveness of sins and become a born again new creature in Christ. Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. Call upon the Lord Jesus to save you, having a humble and contrite spirit. The time is short - believe the rapture. Baptism and church membership cannot save you, only Christ can. Don’t be a make-believer and a fake-believer, become a true born again believer. Do not spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross shedding His precious atoning blood for you. Be saved from the wrath of God in hell and the great tribulation period. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” – (Jn.3:36). God loves you and wants to redeem you through His beloved Son – don’t reject Him.
Watch for the President-Beast nudging U.S. toward purple.
